Trying to find out when I will get the VIIC in the 1st Flotilla, currently based at Kiel.

Running SH3 cmdr and GWX2.1

Have checked realistic uboat avaliabilty.

I've got one available on Thursday. Two previous owners, low mileage.

Due to the credit crunch, we see from our records that there is still a sum owing on the previous damage to U-198.

Make cheques payable to "Adm. Karl Doenitz"...

Seriously, I think the first type VIIC's came into service about May 1940 (see U-Boat.net). Whether SH3 accurately reflects this I don't know.

Wow! Did I get it wrong! According to U-Boat.net the first VllC was U-69, commissioned on 2nd Nov. 1940 and began operations on 1st Feb. 1941, with 7th Flotilla. That is a lot later than I would have assumed.

Tell you what, I'll give you Mayfair, the 4 Railway stations and a "get out of jail free" card, even?

Yeah, did the research on the same site, earlier, but was wondering if anyone knew where to look in the game or cmdr files. Or had just been able to upgrade in their current career.

It looks like from the flotilla.cfg file that the 1st gets its first VIIC's in March of 1941.

No the flotilla.cfg file in Silent Hunter III.
